Presler s  Intel 865PE Supports Presler?

Intel has just launched the 975X chipset and so far only first
tier motherboard makers like Gigabyte and ASUS have finished developing their
boards based on the chipset. The new 975X chipset supports the upcoming 65nm
Dual core Pentium XE and D processors codenamed Presler as well as the single
core Cedarmill. The Pentium XE “Presler” will sport a higher 1066MHz FSB, 2 x
2MB L2 cache, VT, HT while Pentium D “Presler” will sport 800MHz FSB, 2 x 2MB L2
cache, VT but no HT. However, the current chipsets like 945 and 955X will not be
able to support Pentium XE “Presler” but will work with Pentium D “Presler”.
Interestingly, our friends from HKEPC managed to run a Pentium XE 955 (3.46GHz)
on a 865PE based board called 775i65PE from Asrock but it is specially designed
to support XE 955 as well as 1066MHz FSB. As for 915/925 and 945/955 chipsets,
Intel has sort of lock them down to prevent support for the Pentium XE “Presler
